They were found by their limousine driver, Eddie Cassels, who was worried when they didn’t show up on-time at the door. “I came to their door, and it was open,” Cassels said. “When I walked inside, I saw this crazed man scrubbing the floor mumbling some jitterish that I couldn’t understand. When I approached him, he got up screaming, and that’s when I saw the bodies. Then I ran out of the room screaming to call the police.”
Crystal Lake police chief Steve Fitzsimmons claimed that there was no possible way of the murders being linked to Jason Voorhees, and that an arrest had been made earlier this morning.
Norman Bailey, 45, was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. Bailey, who worked at the hotel as a maintenance worker, has had a history of psychological disorders. The hotel manager had no comment.
Despite pleas from City Hall, the townspeople are fleeing en masse. Most are scared to leave their house, fearing that Jason Voorhees was back once again to kill. Mayor Joseph Quincy has urged the people to stay calm and not to get caught up in the hype.
“These murders are by no means related to Jason Voorhees,” Quincy said. “We have apprehended the man responsible and he will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There’s no reason to be alarmed. Crystal Lake is as safe today as it was yesterday.”
To help with the public morale, Chief Fitzsimmons ordered two guards to be posted at the old Camp Crystal Lake for security measures.
